September 4-7, 1998
Best Western - Oak Hills
San Antonio, Texas

Hold onto your hats because this is going to be a big one!  First of
all, there is no more receptive city in the world than San Antonio.
You think you will be going there for the radio conference, but when
you leave you will still be talking about the remarkable city sights,
the Alamo, sure! The Riverwalk?  The restaurants?  Six Flags over
Texas?  Sea World? Tower of the Americas?  It's endless!
    And be sure to bring your radio!  Imagine! DXing from a city you'e
been trying to DX for years!  Our host, Dale Hamm, has arranged a tour
of WOAI from 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday afternoon.  Wouldn't it be a kick to
walk through the hallowed halls of one of Americas' last truly Clear
Channel operations?
    But wait, there smore!
    If we start listing all the stations you can visit on this page,
you just know that one or more stations will be changing their call
signs to make us look foolish.   So we'll just say, in a city with two
dozen radio stations youer going to be hard pressed to hear them all,
let alone visit the ones Dale will suggest we go see.
    But the real fun?  Of course.  Meeting many of the DXrs you're
read about and who have become such familiar names in the hobby.  Many
of them will have attended these conventions in the past and they'll be
able to help you figure out what's going on most of the time.  Our
tried and true receptionist will keep you newcomers on track too.  So
come on Friday if you possibly can and plan for a full day of
activities on Saturday and Sunday.
    Sunday morning we'll have the annual radio station quiz .. and a
live taping of the "Travellog" .. a tour across the country with our
dial set to one a.m. frequency .. loads of fun.  In between the
scheduled events, relax, meet and chat with others who share this
wonderful hobby.  It's really a neat time for all of us.

to the Best Western.  Many airlines serve San Antonio but South West
Air is offering NRC'ers 10% off; give them the special code number

    Driving:  San Antonio is at the junction of I-10 and I-35.  I-410
is the beltway around the city.  The hotel is in the northwest quadrant
of the city.  Drive onto I-410 from I-10 or I-35 to the Babcock Street
exit, turn north on Babcock to Wurzbach Road.  Turn right on Wurzbach
Road and the Best Western is the third building on your left.
    The weekend program will start Friday p.m. and end Sunday p.m.
Saturday is for seeing the city and/or visiting the stations.  Sunday

Right now Bill is looking for target station lists and stamps or money
to help get the lists worked on.








Pat Martin - Seaside OR - mwdxer@xxxxxxxxx

I was tuning around at 0500 EDT (0900 UTC) on 6/15 and caught KKJC-1640
back on the air running Pop music from Greenacres, WA. Anmts by the
male DJ that the station has "for the most part" been shut down, but
occasionally comes on. Fairly good, on top of KDIA offf Eastern
Beverage. Signal off frequency at  1639.95 Khz, caught a little growl
on the channel.  Grab this while to can. I guess Wisconsin is due on
anytime. (PM-OR)


Patrick M. Griffith (Pat) - Federal Heights, CO - AM-DXer@xxxxxxxxx

KKTR / 1650 / Costa Mesa, CA

A couple of interesting items on this station from the FCC database.
This is a two-site installation with the day and night transmitters in
different locations.

The coordinates for the day site are the same as those for KLTX / 1390
licensed in the city of Long Beach. The database shows the full 10 kw
with a 364' (231.2 degree) tower. A tower of this length would be
considered as an 'anti-fade' antenna at this frequency and should show
a good gain factor.

The coordinates for the night site are the same as those for KVNR /
1480 licensed in the city of Santa Ana. The database shows 930 watts
into a 166' (105.6 degree) antenna at this site which is just barely
over 1/4 wave.

Santa Ana and Long Beach are only about 12 miles apart. The cost of 2
transmitters and the necessary tuning/duplexing units plus the STL
links to 2 sites is very high. You have to wonder why they did this.

And yes, I very much agree that the new format sounds like a giant TIS
station. Where's the money in that? It seems to me that some big bucks
are being wasted in these new x-band stations. I am convinced this band
would have seen better use as a community radio service with many low
power licensees.


Tim Noonan - Madison WI - DXing@xxxxxxxxx

WTDY 1480 Madison WI is now WTDA, and the 1670 facility is WTDY.  1670
hopes to sign on next week (June 22+).  Thanks to the station and Bill
Dvorak for this information.




Jean Burnell - St. John's, NF, Canada - jburnell@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    I had really enjoyed my introduction to West Coast DX by John
Bryant, Dave Clark, and John Fisher in June of 1997.  This year I was
scheduled to participate in a conference near Vancouver so I took the
opportunity travel west a few days before my meeting in order to sample
again some DX from Down Under.  I returned to Grayland WA with my Drake
R8A and a large spool of wire, and every evening I laid out two
terminated Beverages, a 1,200-foot "New Zealand wire" at 230 degrees
and a 1,000-foot "Australian wire" at 260 degrees.
    Conditions were certainly not as good as they had been in June of
1997.  On only one morning (29 May) did the New Zealanders put in a
decent showing, and, with the exception of RFO Tahiti on 738 kHz and
Tonga on 1017 kHz, the Pacific Island stations were essentially
unheard.  In spite of the generally weaker signals, a number of
stations that I did not hear or identify in 1997 made it into the
logbook.  The new North American X-band stations are making reception
of the low-powered Australian X-banders much more difficult.  For
instance, last year 4AM and 4ADR were relatively easy catches on 1620
kHz.  This year, KRIZ from Seattle completely dominated 1620 kHz at all
times.  Nevertheless, reception of Radio Club AM and Radio 1701 were
    Any help on my unID's would be much appreciated!

        unusual news items, definitely // 702 and 774 at 1222, although

 927   UNID, 2 stations, MAY 27 1227-1234 - Very tricky to separate
        these two, initially one had woman presenter while other had
        pop music; woman talked about a prize and a "competition,"
        which was followed by an announcement for a help line "if you

        noted simultaneously on this nominal frequency, one with sports
        play-by-play and another had a jingle that ended with "the
        greatest songs of all time" that may have been 1ZN, Whangarei,
        New Zealand, or 4MK, Mackay, Australia - the latter was
        positively IDed half an hour later; all were SIO 232-1. One
        station, probably the strongest one, seemed to be ca. 20 Hz on
        the high side of 1026.
